NEW PATTERN OF WORSHIP –
1st Sunday in the month (1st Sep) an ‘All Age’ Communion service @ 10.00 am, still shorter and child friendly!  (We will no longer have a Sunday Communion Service at 8.00 am). 
1st Tuesday (3rd Sep) prayer walk @ 9.30 am outside on the green at the old Rectory. We then end up at Greyhound at 10.45am when we have a ‘cuppa’. The Greyhound is now putting on breakfast for us, if you would like to join us for this please let Carol or Tricia know, so we have an idea of numbers.

PRAYER WALKS – Every 1st  Tuesday of the month, Tuesday  1st Oct & 5th Nov. Please come along with or without a dog, and we all have a good chatter, and then stop, reflect and pray at several intervals along the way, we start at 9.30 am on Commonside near the old Rectory. We then end up at Greyhound at 11 ish where we have a ‘cuppa’, and/or one of the lovely breakfast options the pub is now providing.  Please join us for this lovely social time – you don’t have to walk first – just let Carol or Tricia know if you would like to be there for food, so we have an idea of numbers.  Thank you!
